#1
[Image: HWT55QI.jpg]

So this one took a lot longer than I first thought, it's not completely finished, but 2 out of 4 discs are ready. This one was a true collaborative effort of fanres members. I would like to thank spoRv, PDB, Jonno, tonecapone, CSchmidlapp, FreaQ, Stamper, MrBrown, milw50717, Plissken1138, Bigrob and Lotto. Could not have done it without you all. 


Disc 1 - Mad Max 1979 - BD50 - 34.2 GB

This is spoRv's Definitiva regrade of Mad Max, using a 4k webrip as the source. This was converted to blu ray via riptbot with the maximum bitrate allowed for blu ray. This was originally going to be a UHD disc and it still might be in the future, sorry spoRv, I just can't get scenarist working. If anyone out there has used Scenarist for UHD menus then maybe drop me a PM. 
  • HD Video with spoRv's special colour matching technique
  • BD-J Menu, pop up menu and background video with resume function
  • Australian DTS-HD 2.0 from the blu ray
  • American Dub DTS-HD 2.0 from the blu ray
  • Australian DTS-HD 5.1 - this is the unique DTS track taken from the Australian DVD

  • Audio Commentary with with director of photography David Eggby, production designer Jon Dowding, special effects technician Chris Murray, and historian/collector Tim Ridge

This disc took the longest by far. I used a lot of animation on the menus, carousel wheels to scroll through the extras etc, so all in all it was about 140 different menus behind the scenes to get it all working. For the background video I had the problem of matching up clips from Mad Max 1979 with clips from Mad Max Fury Road, so I decided to apply some super 8 style filters to try and make all of the footage look similar. I think it turned out pretty good. 

*** Mad Max 2 Extended Composite Version

This is the 4:3 DVD of Mad Max, upscaled to 720p and decimated back to 23.976 fps. It was then run through some dirt and dust removal filters and synced up to the PCM from the laserdisc. Next the uncut scenes from the blu ray were added in, matted to 4:3 and colour corrected so they match the DVD footage. 

Then all of the unique footage from the Lost TV Version was upscaled and cleaned, then added in and colour corrected, I also tried my best to match the volume levels but it's still pretty obvious where the extra footage is. I decided to ignore any footage that was purely there for censorship reasons and only include new/alternate shots/scenes. I kept the Mad Max 2 opening title as opposed to Road Warrior. 

Finally I added the alternate audio from the TV Version, such as Papagello's speech and the opening narration. For the Lost TV Version I had two sources, however one suffered from ghosting and I found it didn't react well to Dr Dre so I used the NTSC version, which suffers from green/pink at the top of the screen in parts. So this is an attempt to create the longest version of Mad Max 2, it's not perfect but overall I'm happy with it.

As and when PDB finishes his edits I will update in this post, not sure how long that will be though and I don't want to rush PDB at all. So for now only discs 1 and 4 are available. The artwork is not 100% finished yet until we can confirm exactly what is being used on discs 2 and 3. We are also planning a booklet detailing everything included. High res artwork will be available upon request. 

PM me for the links, contributing members only please. The photos of the menus aren't great as the only way I could get them is from my phone while the disc is playing, as software players disabled the screenshot function.

This is a very exciting set! Well done for the massive undertaking it represents.

Will Mad Max: Fury Road be a part of this collection as well? How will it be presented?

No plans for Fury Road at this time, I just couldn't think of anything to do to it.

So you managed to get the 2.0 from the australian Blu-ray of Mad Max? This one is the real mono track I assume? Fantastic.

You're right, there's not much to be done. Maybe seamless branching between standard and Black & Chrome versions?
Maybe adding a 35mm grain plate to match the grittier style of the previous films?

Wanna get crazy? Export the film to VHS and reimport the audio for that vintage sound.

A seamless branching would not be good. AFAIK Black and Chrome and standard are each on one disc.
If they are each more than 25 GB size for the videostream, you would need to reduce the bitrate to fit them both on one disc, even if you can reduce the audio streams to one stream for both version.

I know, you're right and the reality is you'd need a quad-layered BD to leave as much room for the bitrate as possible.
